Minicom is a simple text-based modem control and terminal emulation program
somewhat similar to MSDOS Telix. Minicom includes a dialing directory, full
ANSI and VT100 emulation, an (external) scripting language, and other features.
Minicom should be installed if you need a simple modem control program or
terminal emulator.
Run 'minicom -s' as root to create a system wide configuration. Users need
read/write permissions on the serial port devices in order to use minicom.
